Hennessey will make a super powerful Corvette Stingray coupe
Hennessey will make a super powerful Corvette Stingray coupe

Hennessey gives a three-year warranty for all the remodeled vehicles. Oh, wait, this is for junior package of improvements. The package with the most powerful options has only one year warranty. 

Hennessey Performance Atelier has announced four programs of refinement of the new Corvette’s engine, allowing the customer to get the desired balance between power and the tunning cost: HPE600 Supercharged for 600 hp ($ 12,495), HPE700 Supercharged with 700 hp ($ 18,450), HPE800 Twin-Turbo with 800 hp ($ 54,950) and HPE1000 Twin-Turbo with 1,000 hp ($ 67,950) of capacity. The price also includes the work that needs to be done to install such packages. Let us recall that the basic 6.2-liter V8 engine that is installed on the Corvette C7 develops 455 hp of power. It is also supplemented with a seven-step \"mechanical\" or a six-speed \"automatic” transmission. The same transmission selection will also be available for Corvettes remodeled by Hennessey.

The options for engine completion program include: its own Aero kit made of carbon, Hennessey wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, carbon ceramic Brembo brakes, adjustable Penske suspension and combined leather and carbon fiber customizable interior trim level. Engine’s remodeling does not stop just at setting up the supercharger or turbocharger. Depending on the project forged aluminum pistons, new camshafts, forged crankshaft, an intercooler, a modified air filter, exhaust system made of stainless steel and other original parts, except, of course, correct engine management program, could also be installed on the vehicle.

The head of atelier, John Hennessey sais the following: “Model of C6 Service HPE700 generation can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km / h) in 3.3 seconds and has passed the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds. I expect a similar performance for the C7 or maybe even a faster one. Anyway, we prefer to be cautious to make any promises until we get the exact figures”. The first buyers will be able to purchase first models by the end of this year.
